The Best Night Life in London

The StarTripper Journal presents the best night life London, both Night Clubs, disco and other - the Club Guide.

Our Team to London are professional businessmen who frequently visit London. For the nightclub test, the Team has been reinforced with two young ladies.

London is a shopping mecca where you will find absolutely everything in every style and every taste – the real places “to shop til you drop”. From luxury goods in Mayfair to quirky finds in Covent Garden, to large shopping centres like Westfield and department stores like Harrods.

The heart of London shopping, bustling Oxford Street has more than 300 shops, designer outlets and landmark stores. Home to the legendary Selfridges and famous department stores such as John Lewis and Debenhams – and if you get off the beaten track by slipping into a side street, such as St Christopher's Place and Berwick Street, you'll find some real treats.

Bond Street and Mayfair are the ideal places to go for some extravagant retail therapy – London's most exclusive shopping area, home to big names, including Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany.

Carnaby Street, the birthplace of the fashion and cultural revolution during the Swinging 60s, and the surrounding streets are two minutes away from Piccadilly Circus – here you'll find an intriguing mix of stores and boutiques. We recommend refuelling at restaurant hub Kingly Court, just off Carnaby Street.

Whether you want hip fashion or unique gifts, Covent Garden is a great place to explore. Seven Dials and picture-pretty Neal's Yard for a true taste of London's most distinctive shopping area. Here you'll find Neal's Yard Dairy with its range of delicious British farm cheeses, and the flagship Neal's Yard Remedies.

So come to London, do the real art of shopping, but before “you drop”, enjoy a sedate afternoon tea and rest before the night fall on and all the hip nightclubs open.

The currency are English Pound (£).

Restaurant The 100 Club was founded in 1942 and has made a name for itself by hosting innovative bands.

The 100 Club has always been the vanguard of cutting edge music. In the 1940s and 50s, this basement club hosted Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball and Humphrey Lyttleton and it was at the epicentre of jazz, swing, boogie and blues.

In the 60s that music was replaced with the likes of Rod Stewart, and the club hosted the first punk festival, which included unsigned bands like The Sex Pistols.

The 100 Club continues to host some of the best bands in the world, from acoustic sessions from up and coming bands to live gigs from The Hives and Kings of Leon.

This old lion is still roaring every night.
